We are pleased to announce the release of ArmA 2 DayZ Epoch 1.0.6, available for download at: http://epochmod.com/a2dayzepoch.php
This release introduces the integration of some of the most common Epoch community modifications from prior epoch release, DayZ Mod 1.8.8, and a new group system that persists in the database. Most of the highlights can be found in the change log below, which is fairly comprehensive, but by no means exhaustive.
Please note that community addons/expansions for previous Epoch release WILL NOT work on Epoch 1.0.6, be sure to review the change log for which mods are now included. In addition, the loot table format has completely changed, you must base your loot table modifications on the new format, which can be found by evaluating the stock loot tables: https://github.com/EpochModTeam/DayZ-Epoch/tree/Release_1.0.6/SQF/dayz_code/Configs/CfgLoot
18.104.22.168 and older Single Currency scripts are NOT compatible with 1.0.6, there is no included single currency script in this release. However, because we are so wonderful, we have chosen to integrate single currency saving to the DB, so a third-party HiveEXT is not necessary and the SQF is all that needs to be written/updated.
Solar Generator / Energy capacity system:
Solar Generator base item can be crafted from items found in the world. When placed gives passive power within (75m Default). Energy capacity system controls how much power is available based on the type of energy source and number of players in area. Personal solar generators have 10 charge rate at day and reduced charge capacity of 5 at night. Wind towers and large solar farms have 100 charge rate. Each player will equally share the energy charge capacity up to the max charge rate of 5 per tick. More solar generators can be built to increase total charge capacity for larger groups. Wood Towers
Can be crafted using a Wood Floor Kit and 4x lumber. First test of the new building upgrade system gives you the ability to use 2x lumber to add a windowed wall to the side you are standing. Walls can be removed and refund one lumber pack. Wood Walls / Upgrade in Place
New upgrade in place options and 4 new plywood walls Building upgrade system now supports multiple options and has new basic UI. Wood Ladder
Can be crafted from 4x lumber. Base Building
Removed base object "Move" in 3d option in favor of a more refined "ghost" snap mode. Can now disable base building by pressing Esc or 'gear' menu. Angle of snapping was incorrect when building on angles. Can now press '2' to disable building snap mode and 1 to re-enable. Normalized snap memory points for wood tower and stairs should make snapping more accurate Issue that caused shifting of some base objects after restart. Only maintain damaged objects and object health is repaired on maintain. Looting
New loot/crafting items: (Solar Panels, Wire Cables, Battery Box). Air Drop loot has been Increased. Pumpkin harvesting on Chernarus should work, "Trash" loot now has separate configs. Antagonists
Cultist's make a triumfant return, as cultist spawning is now fixed. Vehicles
Fixed JetSki sinking like a rock.
[Changed] Moved client gamemode and CfgFunctions init to mission file. [Changed] Base building upgrade recipes and remove payouts now have dedicated config "CfgBaseBuilding" and code supports over-loading via description.ext. [Changed] Server side database functions renamed and now use cfgFunctions via a new pbo "epoch_server_core". [Changed] Make use of new command getAllHitPointsDamage in A3 1.50 to increase performance of hitpoint data storage. [Changed] Use new A3 command setHitIndex instead of setHitPointDamage so we can use all hitpoints regardless of name. [Changed] Change BIS_fnc_distance2D usage over to distance2D command that was added with A3 1.50 for better performance. [Fixed] Loot code for "CfgBuildingLootPos" now uses EPOCH_returnConfig to allow over-loading via description.ext. [Fixed] Error in rpt "No geometry and no visual shape" with Poppy and Goldenseal plants models. [Fixed] CfgEpochClient missionConfigFile version check was incorrectly using configFile. [Fixed] Loot object "Blue Tarp" weaponholder proxy position was in the wrong position. [Fixed] Reduce base hunger/thirst loss rate by half if players stamina is above 100. Base rate now can be changed with "baseHTLoss" variable in CfgEpochClient. [Info] Requres Arma 3 1.50 or higher. [ServerInfo] CfgEpochClient removed from description.ext as it can be simply added again from our configs as needed. [ServerInfo] Removed old .bikey and added new one for 0330.

This trader is completely pre-configured and well working. It goes along with Zupa's currency system which allows traders to trade for money, you may also use this on servers without currency by changing a simple line of code. The safe zone coordinates have been given, and everything's perfect. Have fun with the system and let me know what you think. The trader uses all traders except blackmarket and helicopter traders, there is no banker as I used the storage script with Zupa's system. There is a helicopter landing pad, a wide car-park. It also includes map markers, e.g the black markers on the map when searching for a trader. I hope you enjoy my work and I'll be releasing more soon!
Image of the full trader:
I wasn't sure if this was supposed to be placed in the Epoch Bases section, as it's also a tutorial for installing traders, it isn't just the base. So if this has been released in the wrong place, please make sure you let me know and I'll see if I can get it moved. Also, it would be really nice if you guys could drop a comment on the homepage of my website!
2 Bandit WAI customized missions
--- Denny's Farm
--- Troop's Supply
--- Denny is giving out some supplies at his farm.
--- The local troop just received their supply.
-PBO to pack mission file
---Download and install WAI to your server.pbo
---Create farmer_give.sqf and troop_supply.sqf files in dayz_server\WAI\missions\bandits
Copy and paste
In troop_supply.sqf, copy and paste:
---Edit the config.sqf :
wai_bandit_missions = [ ["armed_vehicle",10], ["black_hawk_crash",10], ["captured_mv22",10], ["broken_down_ural",10], ["hero_base",10], ["ikea_convoy",10], ["medi_camp",10], ["presidents_mansion",10], ["sniper_extraction",10], ["weapon_cache",10], ]; the missions you have may be different from me, and the number after the mission name is the chance of the mission will happen
Example: ["mission_name",chance in %]
---Add in farmer_give and troop_supply
so it would look like this
wai_bandit_missions = [ ["armed_vehicle",10], ["black_hawk_crash",10], ["captured_mv22",10], ["broken_down_ural",10], ["hero_base",10], ["ikea_convoy",10], ["medi_camp",4], ["presidents_mansion",10], ["sniper_extraction",10], ["weapon_cache",4], ["farmer_give",6], ["troop_supply",6] ]; Make sure the number add up to 100. You can change the chance of the mission happen by change the number in % to whatever you want.
Now you are done!
Repack your server.pbo to try out the missions :D
Let me know if there is any problem with the mission.
